Time to Upgrade Windows

It’s not too late! You can still snag a free upgrade to Windows 10 from Microsoft. If you’re still running Windows 7, it’s time to avail yourself of this offer. Microsoft is ending support for Windows 7 on January 24, 2020. That means that you will no longer get software updates – in particular, security fixes. The official offer to upgrade to Windows 10 at no cost supposedly ended in July 2016, but Microsoft still offers a legitimate way to upgrade for free. I’ll tell you how.
